Question about 1992 Honda Prelude

3 Answers

My sister has a 92 Honda Prelude and placed a different engine in also from a 92 Honda Prelude. The car is trying to turn over but is getting no fire to the spark plugs and no power to the fuel pump. All grounds and fuses have been checked and appear okay. Not sure what else could be the cause of the problem.

Sounds like a bad ECU. Why did you change motors?

    There were turned bearings in the other engine. She is placing a 2.2 engine in instead of a 2.3 that was originally in the car. The car with the turned bearings is in better shape, so she swapped engines. The lights all work and the car attempts to turn over but like I said, no fire to the sparks plugs or power to the fuel pump. The ECU fuse was checked but we will check again. That is what someone else said it sounded like to them.

    yeah, it sounds like the ECU is not sending signal to the coil packs or to the fuel pump.

  • jenniferm224 May 18, 2011

    Can you tell me what the ECU is and where it is located? I think it is located in the fuse box inside the car to the left of the brake pedal.

    An engine control unit (ECU), is a type of electronic control unit that determines the amount of fuel, ignition timing and other parameters an internal combustion engine needs to keep running. It does this by reading values from multidimensional performance maps (so called LUTs), using input values (e.g. engine speed) calculated from signals coming from sensor devices monitoring the engine. Before ECU's, air/fuel mixture, ignition timing, and idle speed were directly controlled by mechanical and pneumatic sensors and actuators. On this car, It is located either behind the dash, by the gas pedal on the right side of it. OR in the left corner of the floorboard by the brake pedal. Here is a pictur of it.

I have a 92 prelude si that i have recently swapped a h22 in. do i need to get a h22 wiring harness or use the stock one. when cranking the car it seems like the injectors are in use and causing the car to...


If i were you i would use the wiring harness from the engine that you have transplanted into your car,failling that there could be either a mechanical or electrical problem with the engine that you have transplanted, have come across problems like yourself in the past very frustrating and time consuming but you will get there in the end transplanting two different engines is never easy.

I just bought a 1992 honda prelude, what kind of coolant do i use


50/50 ratio of regular Anti-freeze. Prestone is pretty popular. also consider getting your coolant flushed and filled instead....chances are it hasn't been done anytime before you bought it. it will prevent headaches and save your engine as well. One over heat situation and its likely your engine will be turned into garbage.Heat kills engines.
